Feature Article: Safety In Numbers

by alexauthenticworld

Paper Blog

In March 2013, Nurse Education in Practice (NEP) are set to publish the Safety in Numbers series of papers. This nine-paper series traces the 20-year history of translation research that underpins the design, development and international evaluation of the safeMedicate suite of programs. Often called a ‘bench to bedside’ process, education translation research involves the translation of PhD research into tangible education programs that impact upon international education and clinical practice.

This process engages multiple stakeholders in investigating, informing, advancing and solving real world medication dosage calculation problem-solving (MDC-PS) problems. For a period of 3 months, the publisher Elsevier plan to provide free online access to the series and we call upon the international healthcare community to read the papers and to use this blog site to engage in open dialogue and evaluations of the series. This collective dialogue is critical to further advancing the pedagogy of MDC-PS and to improving patient safety within this critical domain of professional healthcare practice.

The nine papers within the Safety in Numbers series can be accessed at:
